For the last decade or so, there has been intense research activity regarding the exploitation of remote sensing technologies in disasters such as drought, extreme temperatures, earthquakes, cyclones, flooding, landslides, wildfires, etc. Climate change is affecting the occurrences of disasters, resulting in the higher vulnerability of regions to severe events. It is important to prevent, mitigate, and recover from disasters by monitoring these disasters using enhanced technologies. Remote sensing is one of such technologies that is suitable to effectively collect data on a large scale with varied spatial, spectral, and temporal resolutions. Many satellite’s data has been employed to monitor disasters, identify the damage of disasters, and assess the recovery of disaster.
This Special Issue invites state-of-the-art research on disaster monitoring using satellite remote sensing data. In this Special Issue, we expect to introduce various studies covering remote sensing technologies that can be applied in disaster monitoring.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
